Construction at Fire Station 4, 4201 West 84th Street, continues to move along. Demolition of Station 4 was completed in March. Work began in April for the new fire station. As of this writing, the foundation and basement walls have been poured. Construction on the new station is expected to be completed spring 2023. Crews anticipate that the sidewalk in front of Station 4 will remain closed to pedestrian traffic for safety. Signs are posted to notify pedestrians of the closure.

Once completed, the new fire station will be a two-story structure with a partial basement totaling approximately
25,578 square feet. The building will include three bays, office space, a training room, living accommodations and firefighter health and safety resources. Station 4 served the community for more than 50 years and reached the end of its useful life.

To provide continuous fire coverage and adequate response time for the service area at Station 4, the Bloomington Fire Department is staffing Stations 1 and 6, with 24-hour, three-person duty crews. Recently, the outdoor warning siren was relocated to Wanda Miller Park, which is across the street from Station 4.
